Re: NOTAM 9th May

Hmm.......80-1085 was last recorded East bound departing Fairford on 12/01/2018. No record of it coming back......unless it was airfreighted back to Beale. Would have thought it extremely unlikely that it returned the long way round. Could this be 80-1086 with a tatty serial? '086 has used AE0968 b...

Re: No bomber deployment in june

Ex Baltops (3-21 June) clearly different this year in that U.S.2nd Fleet leading U.S. participation . Ex Saber Strike not slated this year (U.S. Army led , normally overlaps with Baltops , and usually supported by Fairford bomber deployment). There is an Ex Saber Guardian but no details yet on U.S.A...

Re: Dragon 86/88

4 C-17s came into Fairford before the B-52 Ex presumably delivering equipment, only 2 C-17s have been in after the Ex to take that equipment home. So it would make sense that this C-5 is taking the last of it out, but that's just a guess. Could be a shrewd deduction Sam - plenty of room in 101 ? Lo...

Slightly off topic, but anyone know if the BALTOPS dates are out, I think it might be the same as last year?
3 - 21 JUNE I believe James.
